I'm quite bemused that other reviewers have placed this in the category of "this would have been useful". Honestly a tiny bit of research on Wikipedia would get you further. If you have NEVER come across anything about China in your life then this book will potentially help you. But I found its stilted style and haphazard use of adverbs irritating. "LUCKILY in 2005 UNESCO gave the center of Macau World Heritage status." Sorry, what, why "luckily"? I'd rather pack a bigger book written by someone who has greater powers of expressing their experiences- so for me a big no no.
